George Thomas Clark

Author George Thomas Clarkabout this book: When I started going to art museums and galleries in the 1990s, I discovered I responded personally to the paintings and, rather than analyze the works in the dreary style of academicians, I talked to the characters I beheld. I didn't speak audibly – security might have ejected me for that. I spoke silently, and they responded, and in time the characters on canvas, and the painters who created them, delighted me by frequently starting conversations and revealing the secrets of their artistic stories and personal lives. Thus, I've often talked to Frida Kahlo about her talent and torment, to Diego Rivera about his brilliance and his lust, to Picasso about art and women and his dazzling murals and exhibitions, to Van Gogh about creativity and pain and isolation and moving expressions of the soul, to many wonderful female artists like Lee Krasner and Diane Arbus and Elsie Palmer Payne, to the expressionists who foresaw the darkening clouds of World War One, to superb painters of African descent such as William H. Johnson and Charles White. I've communed with thousands of painters and tens of thousands of their characters, and the best of their stories are in Paint it Blue.
